Cyprus: Averof Neophytou, President of the ruling party of Cyprus, announced his candidacy for the Presidency of the Republic


His intention to claim the anointing for his position the next President of the Republic, announced by President of the ruling party of Democratic Alarm, in Cyprus, Averof Neophytou.

Mr. Neophytou, through a recorded message, states the following:

In relation to the Presidential elections and the procedure decided by the Politburo of the Democratic Alarm, I make the following statement:

“With the sacrifices of our fellow citizens, the right moves of the government, and by forming majorities in Parliament, we managed to make our country stand on its own two feet in difficult times. So Cyprus can make the leap in the future.

If our country prospers tomorrow, it will depend today on our willingness to make responsible decisions and our ability to put them into action.

Only a modern and competitive Cyprus ensures that our lives – and the lives of our children – will be better. We are already taking the first step: With a series of reforms for a new economic model, healthier and more sustainable.

We have a lot ahead of us:

Planning a green and fair development for the next day, which will not leave anyone behind. The bet of the digital transition. The technological transformation of our state in order to better serve the citizen.

The need for modern local government that will guarantee a high quality of life, in cities and communities. The demand for a faster justice system. For institutionally guaranteed transparency.

Improving the structures and content of our education in order to produce critical thinking citizens. Above all, we have an obligation to continue to fight for the liberation and reunification of our homeland.

In our ambitious collective goals, our opponents were and are populism, extremism and discord. Bad lies: good intentions, good theories and public relations are not enough.

Problems are dealt with with knowledge. Systematically forging the widest possible consensus. But also by putting political parties before their responsibilities.

For 30 years in the central political scene, with patience and moderation, I bring results with a positive sign in our country.

I never hid. I never avoided going forward. With clean positions and clean solutions, for the benefit of society and the economy.

Girlfriends and fellow citizens,

Today I want to inform you about my intention to be a candidate for President of the Republic. That is why I am submitting the corresponding proposal to the competent bodies of our party.

The Democratic Alarm is the faction that guarantees social, political and economic stability.

With its decision to select a candidate on March 12, it enables the government to proceed unhindered to the completion of its important project.

Girlfriends and fellow citizens,

I want you, like you, to live in a prosperous country that exploits everyone’s potential without discrimination or exclusion. A Cyprus with a clear horizon for tomorrow. Beautiful, free, open to the future. That reflects the dignity of its inhabitants and provides them with every opportunity for a better life.

Let 2022 be the year of political culture and substantial dialogue for Cyprus the next day! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Averof Neophytou
